I WANT IT IN RED
Even though the color of 2020 is classic blue (durable, calming, productive, connecting), my big heart is asking for deep red (passionate, energizing, dangerous, bright, the shade of adventure or even the one that colors your cheeks when you blush).
I’m not saying strict NO to blue.
It follows me everywhere in a shade of cold - blueish hands & feet. But it’s pretty common amongst women, isn’t it?
(Frozen-too-cold-to-be-pretty-trend: Winter. But where are your gloves?! Once again I’ve left them behind in the CityBee. Then my mom notices me wearing UGG shoes and starts to mumble that I have a bare belly as well. But in fact, UGG’s are 100% wool, they were created by Australian surfers to warm their feet up after a long and cold surf in the ocean. They are really nice to wear on bare feet. Eh, I wish I had red ones right now. Mom proceeds… > How old are you, by the way???
My mom used to tell me, that red is the color of ARIES.
I can’t tell for sure if I am that Aries (the proper one) because some of the horoscopes I’ve read says I’m Aries, the other ones - Taurus. The thing is, I was born on transition day, so I can be a bit of both. I’m pretty sure I don’t lack the stubbornness of Aries, but when I feel the ‘wall’ against my ‘horns’, I know how to gracefully retreat, as Taurus would.
RED NAILS / RED LIPS
Red nails – my personal classic.
The moment I hear manicurist ask the question ‘which color we will do your nails today?’, with the devil in my eyes, I reply bright RED. If I do it at home, I choose CHANEL le Vernis (on the wealthy days), but cheap Būk classic red nail varnish also does the trick (when I’m broke). Personally, red gives me energy. It seems like I get a moment of rest just after gazing at them, while they run through the keyboard.
Well, they are kind of red on their own.
Giorgio Armani Sì/passione/. Sì, Sì, Sì – already two years in a row.
The soul of the scent is actress Cate Blanchett. She says ‘Sì’ (It. ‘yes’) to dreams, freedom and herself.
THE RED STRING BOOK
‘The red string book’ by Yehuda Berg was purchased on Amazon. I got it second-hand (without the red string) just for a couple of euros. It’s about kabbalah, which methods and discipline I basically live by. (I’ll write more about it another time).
I got those.
The first time I’ve noticed them was while watching The Big Bang Theory (Netflix). Season 8, if I remember correctly… And then one day I was passing shoe shop and decided to have a look inside, I saw them, I fell in love with them and for the sake of Penny (!!!), I couldn’t resist and bought them.
RED FOOD AND DRINKS
Tomato soup – yummy…
Red wine – yummy…
Strawberry jelly with fresh strawberries – yummy…
Red chopsticks – Asian dinner for two - very sexy…
I DO WANT IT IN RED!!!
P.S. I have a pair of red jeans in my closet that I don’t fit in anymore and the spring is just around the corner, shit.
